with more witness testimony. Blake is accused of killing his wife-Bonny Lee Bakely- as she sat in a car. Witness for the prosecution- Mary Beth Rennie- recounted how she hid by a tree and didn't respond to Blake's pleas to help his wife after she was shot. She said his pleas didn't seem genuine or real and that his behavior seemed odd and forced. She also testified that Blake stayed away from the car and didn't try to comfort his wife as she lay dying.
